This growing, nationally renowned professional services organisation in looking to hire an in-house counsel to join the highly regarded team to support their growth strategy
The role is varied and challenging with a mix of BAU commercial contract activities and more complex, project based initiatives. The team is well-oiled with plenty of support and time is spent on prioritisation with slick process so you will never feel isolated or unable to manage your time.
The roles may well include the following areas, however can be shaped a little around the candidate's technical background and preferences.
- Commercial agreements and contracts including procurement, sales, marketing, IT outsourcing
- Corporate activity, M&A, banking
- Commercial Litigation management, employment, insurance
- Other ad-hoc legal projects (although there is a separate DP offering, so no real focus on this)
We are ideally looking for a solicitor who can slot in to the the existing team of 4 and work closely with the Head of Legal and Compliance as an able deputy and also support and coach the slightly more junior team members.
Ideally you will have in-house commercial contracts experience (possibly even via secondment) and enjoy the variety that brings, possibly in a regulated industry with 4/5+ years PQE. There is no upper level of experience so if you are a more experienced lawyer looking for something a little different, keen to talk.
There is complete agile working, with hubs dotted around the UK although the majority of stakeholders will be Birmingham based, so as long as you can get to the office as and when for meetings, then a wider location/home working is perfect.
The team is highly proactive, led by a passionate Head of Legal and excellent coach. There is complete trust and an adult environment without the politics. You will be supported in your career and be given the platform to demonstrate your abilities.
Obviously we are looking for pragmatic, commercially aware lawyers who enjoy building relationships and influencing stakeholders.
Salary on offer 58-65k basic plus benefits.
